As we approach the summer holidays, keep coming back to our website for ideas of fun activities to try at home and any organised activities taking place in our local area.

 We often think of video games as an activity involving children sitting for hours on end barely moving. But there are a range of video   games designed to get players moving, often with a fair amount of jumping and dancing while they play. 

  Click HERE for a list of active games to try.

Please remember it is important to check the games age rating to ensure it is suitable for your child to play.

 

 Don't forget the amazing things we already have on our doorstep, but are often forgotten about..

Click HERE for a list of local attractions. 

Please remember to check opening times etc with the attraction before visiting.

 

 

The Art House have been making films with artists in residence and other members of our creative community for the last three years. The films are gentle, informative and a soothing balm for anyone struggling without a regular face to face culture fix!

Watch and subscribe to their YouTube channel HERE.

We’ve been approached by a team of researchers at the University of York who are interested in how children with special educational needs and disabilities are feeling during the Coronavirus outbreak and how parents/guardians would like to be supported.  They would like to invite you to complete a 5-10 minute online survey by clicking this link (https://york.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_e4LnbX5Q7X2MF9j).  They’ve also compiled a list of online resources to support your wellbeing and your child’s wellbeing during the Coronavirus outbreak (see below).  If you have any queries about this survey, please contact the research team directly on ed-fabproject@york.ac.uk

Operation EncompassWe are pleased to be part of a scheme called Operation Encompass.  Operation Encompass is a partnership between education and the police. If police are called out to an incident of domestic abuse, and a child has been present, they will contact the child's school before 9am the next day.  This then means the school can offer support to the child if needed.
